Slain Lasantha Wickrematunge’s wife complains of inaction to IGP

[TamilNet, Friday, 27 March 2009, 08:35 GMT]
“The statements made by senior members of the government show unequivocally that he (Minister, Keheliya Rambukwella) and the president of Sri Lanka are aware of the identity of the killers,” said Ms. Sonali Wickrematunge, the wife of the assassinated Sunday Leader Editor, Lasantha Wickrematunge on 8 January, in her letter sent to the Inspector General of Police (IGP) on 15 March.

Ms. Sonali Wickrematunge, who is an Attorney-at Law and a journalist, quoted Mr. Rambukwella’s exact words as quoted in 29 January 2009 Daily Mirror newspaper as, “Currently all we can say is that investigations are still ongoing. There is no update and we will not divulge anything now as this could hamper the inquiries. The President has made his decision to reveal to the media on February 15 some very important details behind both the attacks so we will have to wait till then.”

She further points out that, “This statement has not been contradicted by Mr. Rambukwella or anyone else.”

“It has been over two months since my husband was killed and there has still been no credible breakthrough in the investigation. No murder weapon, no suspect, no post mortem report still been made public,” Sonali Wickrematunge points out in the letter to the IGP.
